Dr. Richard P Cochran has the following 1 specialty

  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Made me feel relaxed and confident

I saw Dr Cochran on 5 Sept as a referral from my GP concerning a most troubling development which took me by surprise. Naturally, I was very stressed by the potential problems, but Dr Cochran was both professional and personable and took the time to detail the situation and discuss options. He talked me through the medical jargon in language a lay person could understand and laid out a plan for follow up treatment. With an hour his nurse, Tammy, had everything arranged for more tests and another evaluation and even scheduled an appointment with my GP reference related medication. Dr Cochran was sincere and caring. Staff was helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend Dr Cochran.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Unclear and abusive

This doctor was on-call when my husband had a problem less than one day after being released from the hospital after open-heart surgery. We called early in the morning for guidance during a heart event. Dr. Cochran was unfortunately the one who took the call. He did not explain the parameters of the problem well, which was not foreseen nor addressed in the discharge instructions. He misinterpreted concern as "panic" which it was not and then became abusive, disrespectful and rude. We did go to the ER where we got excellent care and when we told the ER doc specifically what Dr. Cochran had said, she was shocked. I would not, under any circumstances, recommend Dr. Cochran, who is now in Everett, Washington.
